Having suffered a TBI (traumatic brain injury) - seriously, folks - a few years back and been through at least one of these little bastards, I guess I can chime it. Trouble is when folks see or hear the word stroke, the worst comes to mind. Not having seen your wife or know her exact symptoms at the time of the "event", I can't really do more than offer generalized info. For mini-strokes, as many folks here have already covered, GENERALLY (in other words, don't hold me to it) the effects are temporary and pass without medical intervention or permanent damage. You need to be really concerned if the symptoms persist or even intensify. If it was simply a singular event and she has sought medical attention, I'm thinking she should be fine. Now as to what caused it, could be many things and I'm sure she'll be put through the gamut of tests (if she hasn't already) to try and nail down the exact cause of the event. My best wishes go out to your family, these can certainly be very frightening things, but I'm sure she'll get all the best treatment out there and be fine.

I guess it's very rude and improper to state that this explains so very much....

Nah, I think Mando & I can take a good joke...too bad this isn't one.
Still got it.

Back to topic though...Mando please let us know how this works out; my thoughts are with you and your family
